Ottawa: Last week the Canada police have arrested a Christian priest of Indian origin Father Toby Devasia on allegations of sexual abuse.
The Canada police told media that the woman had gone to Church and spoke to Fr Devasia – Vicar of St Mary’s Syro Malabar Church at King Edward Avenue, London in Canada – for sometime; when she was leaving, she told the police that she was touched inappropriately by the 33-year old priest.
The woman was an elderly woman and refused to comment more on the details of the allegations.
The police arrested the priest from his residence. Father Devasia was ordained a priest five years ago.
His first court appearance is slated for June 24.
He was charged following an investigation into the sexual assault report on May 6.
